He'll then head over to Meeting Street where he'll host a business roundtable at the Regions Bank at 9:30 a.m. Finally, he'll speak to students at West Ashley Middle School at 11 a.m.
The House Republican primary in South Carolina is scheduled for June 12. Katie Arrington (R-Summerville), has already said she will challenge him in the race.
